    Default Ebay Amazement

    As an engineer I have often heard this definition of stupidity
    "Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome"

    Several threads have appeared on this "tortuous" story of the F4 peghead and it's associated case but this dude doesn't give up!!

    Change the deal on the listing with the peghead.....list the case and list the case. Simply amazing to me...

    The seller is missing a golden opportunity to enhance the description of his item. Being able to tune the treble side strings with the case closed is a HUGE advantage!

    It says 'Make An Offer' - do you think he would take $25.00, including shipping?

    Quite a gamble -- he might say yes, then YOU would be stuck with it!

    Actually, a couple years ago I found an old 50's Gibson chipboard case in the closet that was falling apart, had tons of duct tape on it, ugly, etc. I was gonna throw it out, but that little light bulb went off -- eBay! -- the case was worthless, but I thought the hinges, latches, and the handle might be worth something. I put that stuff up for auction and I think it brought $40 or so........so, it pays to take out the trash once in a while, I mean, recycle.....................

    He's still trying at $189.99 or Best Offer +$7.00 shipping but it appears he MIGHT have sold the only thing worth anything shown in that auction... the tuners on that broken headstock.

    If I could pick it up for next to nothing, I would use that headstock and make an interesting bookend!
